Lucy Bernholz spoke at Somerset House in London about "Disrupting Philanthropy" in March 2011.
Described as a 'philanthropy game changer' by the Huffington Post, Lucy Bernholz is an award-winning blogger, and the author of Disrupting Philanthropy 2.0 - an analysis of how new technology and the increasing availability of data are fundamentally reshaping the flow of philanthropic resources. Lucy's insights into the business of giving offer a glimpse of how new technology will shape the where, how and why we will give now and in the future.
Lucy's perspective is incredibly valuable and relevant to the UK, particularly following the publication of the Giving Green Paper. Lucy is currently a Fellow in Philanthropy at the New American Foundation and a visiting scholar at the Stanford University Center on Philanthropy and Civil Society.
The event was organised by the Big Society Network, NCVO, Society Guardian and Steve Bridger.
